Serena Williams was the picture of elegance, grace, AND comfort at the royal wedding reception on May 19. While Serena kept things prim and proper in a light pink look for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ceremony, she brought out a fierce, sophisticated style for their reception — with a surprise shoe underneath. She rocked a stunning Valentino gown with a square neckline and a bright floral skirt, pairing the ensemble with a bold, eye-catching Bulgari necklace and Valentino black sneakers.
Given that the tennis star wore sneakers to her own wedding, it should come as no surprise that she once again combined comfort and style for a night on her feet. On Instagram, she captioned a video of her full outfit, revealing that Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli gave her these sneakers at the last minute when she warned him that she tends “to be comfy for long nights.” Um, same!
She also thanked Pierpaolo “for making me look special on this special evening,” and we agree — she looks absolutely spectacular and special! Read on for another glimpse, then see how other guests dazzled for the evening.
